CodeIgniter.com:
New User Guide in Development
October 06, 2011 @ 09:55:48

The CodeIgniter development team is happy to announce work that's been done on the framework's user guide to help make it even better and easier to find the information you're looking for (now based on the Sphinx documentation generation engine).

In addition to handling the tedium of generating page and document tables of contents, or maintaining internal links and references, the documentation is now easier to write, as you can simply focus on the content instead of markup and presentation. Don't forget syntax highlighting of PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in code samples. Based on ReStructured Text, it's also more human readable in a text editor than HTML is, which is likely where you spend most of your time. As an added benefit, Sphinx can output HTML, PDF, and even EPUB formats all from the same source files.

There's also been a style redesign in the latest release (here on github) on the development branch of the framework. They warn of a few "bumps" that you might come across in using it, but they're working hard to take care of those quickly. If you'd like to see the new version, check out the nightly build results.

Label Media Blog:
Installing Sphinx and PECL/Sphinx on Mac OS X
January 13, 2011 @ 13:08:20

Sam Holman has written up a new post on the Label Media blog today about installing Sphinx and PECL/sphinx on a Mac OS X system. No sample code is provided, but this will definitely help with the setup.

I've got a fairly vanilla install of Snow Leopard (10.6) and use the default installations of PHP, MySQL, Apache, et al. Installing the Sphinx open source search engine and the PECL extension wasn't too much of a pain, but would have been easier had i had the following notes to hand.

His first try was with Macports, but dependency issues shot that down quickly. Instead he opted for the more conventional path of: download the binaries of Sphinx and using the "pecl" command line too to install the PECL module. All that's left is adding the line to load the share object (sphinx.so) into the php.ini's config. You can find out more about the PECL sphinx package here

Zend Developer Zone:
Indexing Email Messages with PHP, Zend Lucene and Sphinx
August 20, 2009 @ 07:52:29

New on the Zend Developer Zone is this new tutorial about combining the Sphinx and the Zend Framework to search and index email messages from a remote mailbox. He'll also compare it to the Zend Framwork Lucene indexing tool.

Over the next few pages, I'll run you through what I did and the steps I took to index a large email collection with Sphinx. I'll also try the same thing with another very common text search engine, the Zend Framework's Lucene implementation, in order to compare and contrast the differences between the two approaches.

The tutorial shows how to install the PEAR packages needed to access the mailbox, includes a quick look at installing Sphinx and the code to create the searchable index (and perform a search) for each tool. Screenshots are included so you can see the desired results.

Antony Dovgal's Blog:
PECL/sphinx - fast fulltext search made easy
July 31, 2008 @ 15:14:08

Antony Dovgal has a quick post today about a PECL extension that makes for quick and easy full-text searching on standard SQL databases.

As some of you might have noticed, I've been a bit busy lately creating new PECL extension - sphinx. The extension provides an interface to a feature-rich fulltext search engine Sphinx written by Andrew Aksyonoff. We (Andrew and me) made our best to keep the extension as compatible to the pure-PHP API (shipped with Sphinx) as possible in order to make the transition easier.

The PECL page has already been created as well as a page in the manual for how it works. He also briefly mentions the installation (including teh required libraries).
